Miami —

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, ordered today the reopening of the places of worship, which remained, for the most part, closed since the restrictions to contain the pandemic in the country were adopted.

“I urge governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. If there is any question, they are going to have to call me, but they are not going to be very successful in that call, ”said the president during a brief appearance at the White House.

Trump, affirmed that this type of institutions are “essential”, said that in the event that any state refuses to follow its instructions, the federal government “disavows” its jurisdiction.

“In the United States we need more prayers, not less,” the president concluded, before leaving the room without accepting questions from the media.
